Find water surface elevation from introducing a known volume of water at a point

I am trying to find the water surface elevation that results from a certain volume of water being introduced into an area from a point. I can use surface volume (BELOW) for this while iterating over elevations until I achieve a matching volume, but I want to apply this volume of water only to areas that are continuously connected to the point source. Basically, I need one pool, not multiple.


I was considering chopping my DEM to only include the single "pool", but because I don't know the elevation yet, this is somewhat difficult.


Is there an easier or simple way to achieve this?


I am using LIDAR data to produce a DEM and have access to 3d analyst, spatial analyst, and the hydrology toolset.
